Happy Thanksgiving Jody, thanks for the kind words! My turkey's in the oven right now and the wine's chilling. :)

Understood about the trade posts but don't want it to become a swamping tide of them in coming days- so feel free to point people to better resources when you see a thread kicking up. Thanks again!

Good point, Diana. Here are a few good starting points I was emailing some friends yesterday for trading resources.

1. Usenet - subscribe to a good news server and start downloading from alt.binaries.gdead.*. Buzzardnews and Giganews are good servers, I use Grabit as a client. Best likelihood of completing your download and quickly. Anyone who needs help with this let me know, it's pretty easy to learn.

2. Furthernet - tons for offer using this P2P program. Lots of RAM, often slow, but I've sometimes downloaded shows impossible to find elsewhere.

3. Bittorrent - bt.etree.org has lots of Dead for download. Usually better than Furthernet, especially if a lot of people are downloading at the same time. I use Azureus as a client. Make sure to follow the directions on how to configure your firewall.

4. etree - trade shows with others via s-mail using db.etree.org, start posting your own list to increase your chances of someone wanting to trade.

5. GDLive - back to the old standby. Many very nice SBDs there.

From '84-'91 I built a collection of hundreds of tapes trading through Relix magazine and via email on the nascent internet. Even without Archive, we are still spoiled rotten, folks.

Hi laptaper,

Thank you for your great post here on all our possibilities now that the Archive has lost the Grateful Dead and your willingness to help us technically challenged out. I also want to thank everyone at LMA for all they have done for us over the last couple of days, during a holiday as well. You are all truly amazing people. Sorry I digress.

Laptaper, I am very clueless about the whole P2P, Bittorrent thing and think I’ve got myself blocked from the bt.etree.org site. When you find the time, could you contact me so that I may ask you a few questions about all of it? I would really appreciate it. I look forward to hearing from you.

etree.org's host, ibiblio, went down unexpectedly and apparently they're still working on it. Darn!

Shall do. Enjoy the bird and wine (although not necessarily in that order!)

I can completely relate. I didn't find this archive until about ten days ago, and not thinking it would be going anywhere, I was only grabbing a show or two a day; just what I was able to listen to in that day. I'm really disappointed, bummed, and frustrated.
